Lovely area to walk around. Plenty of seating to admire the detention waterway. Lotus flowers. Statute and plenty of information about the history and purpose of the park and lake. A few joggers. A few homeless people. Everyone enjoying the relaxing space.

Echo Park is another small oasis in this vast city. In this place you will find a small lake that will give you the opportunity to take a stroll and relax from the chaos of the metropolis. It is close to Glendale, the Dodger Stadium, the Chinatown district and it is not far from downtown. Remember to always consider the... More

The boathouse has a new cafe where they serve brunch, coffee and tea. The boathouse also has a peddle boat dock where you can rent boats... More

Los Angeles is not a city made for pedestrians. When I moved here I thought to myself people are lazy. They drive around and get stuck in traffic. They suck. Little Parisian fought hard and walked walked walked everywhere I could. And honestly I have walked through pretty dull and boring suburban parts of the city: mini malls and gas... More

I go to Echo Park at least once a week for a walk. I grew up in this neighborhood years ago when it wasn't so great. It's beautiful and safe now! The lake is tranquil and the abundance of wild life will amaze you. It's become a very 'in' spot for those of us in the know. I would highly... More

Great little city park surrounding excellent lake. Some nice shady areas to sit and relax, eat your lunch, people watch. Many people use the path for jogging. Even though you're surrounded by cars driving by it's pretty peaceful here. Nice views of downtown as well.

Great place for a little R & R! This neighborhood has changed quite a bit for the better! It's close to the LA Dodgers Stadium and Sunset Blvd. Awesome for a nice stroll, a picnic or rent a paddle boat. Just watch where you park! The police are ready to tow cars at any moment!
